's a 10-day forecast of the air mass movement. see how we sit astride this sharp temperature demarcation line? the blue is cold air, and the orange is hot air. look at this thing that comes down over the weekend and sweeps into northern minnesota, north dakota, and even upper michigan. we will get warm as that comes in, because it will turn our winds around to the south, produce a weather system that comes in from the west, and turns our winds southerly late in the weekend early next week. so we'll warm back up and not cool off until next week at some point. we have seven 80s left to go, history tells us, and there's a pretty good rain system coming too. generous sunshine tomorrow, rain out of the forecast. but wednesday, clouds over, there could be showers late in the day and there is a very good chance of downpour generating thunderstorms thursday night. it will taper to sprinkles and will end friday which will be beautiful, saturday is beautiful and a thunderstorm sunday as we begin to warm back up again, and we'll have more 80s for you, micah and mark, by early next week. >> fabulous
